Chiropractic Care in Burbank
We specialize in family and sports chiropractic in Burbank, CA. Our chiropractor, Doctor Shahen Simian, practices various techniques and is careful to consider each patient's unique situation.
Receiving regular chiropractic care is a great way to decrease pain, keep motion/movement within the body, and allow your body to function at optimal levels. Keeping consistent with treatments and maintenance care is always recommended to try and ensure the body is performing at the highest level.
Chiropractic Adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments, or manipulation, consists of slight movement of the vertebra in the spine or bones surrounding any other joint in the body for that matter. It is a non-invasive technique used to restore normal body function and help with treatment of both acute and chronic conditions. The purpose of receiving a Chiropractic adjustment is to help realign the spine and remove any type of nerve interference or stress placed on the body. These vertebra being “out of place” can be caused from posture, some type of trauma such as an auto accident or sports injury, or from normal daily activities.
Massage Therapy: Massage therapy is a highly effective method used in conjunction with chiropractic to bring oneself out of pain and closer to full wellness. Chiropractic care and massage therapy has been an amazing combination in helping our Burbank patients to achieve levels of wellness and to help alleviate pain throughout the body. Massage therapy not only feels great, but has even greater benefits to the body.
Kinesiotape: Kinesio-tape, or Rocktape, is an excellent alternative treatment method used by many today. It is utilized amongst the top athletes in the world, to help not only with their athletic performance, but also for rehabilitation. This adhesive tape is applied to the skin in such a way that it provides a slight lift allowing for better fluid drainage and circulation, decrease rehabilitation time, and decrease muscle soreness to name a few. It also allows for freedom of movement while acting as a support system to your muscles to try and prevent injury. Many chiropractors have adopted Kinesio-tape to assist in their rehabilitation programs for athletes and others who have specific pain and soreness.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation: Electrical muscle stimulation is a commonly used therapy when it comes to rehabilitation. Pads are placed on or around the area of stress and transmit electrical impulses to help release natural pain relievers called endorphins. These impulses help to promote healing, increase circulation, and reduce pain. This type of therapy can also be used to increase muscle stimulation and prevent atrophy in patients who have suffered from neurological disorders or are post-surgical. There are many other benefits of electrical muscle stimulation such as: helping increase range of motion, decrease pain, prevent muscle atrophy, improve circulation and quicken recovery time.
Therapeutic Ultrasound: Ultrasound is a commonly used modality amongst those in the health care profession and is an excellent treatment source. High frequency sound waves are produced by mechanical vibration over the area of injury, transmitting energy into the tissues. It can be used to help decrease pain, decrease inflammation, and promote tissue healing, as well as many other injuries. Ultrasound can be beneficial in treating a variety of injuries including injuries to soft tissue, muscle strains, and joint pain.
- Myofascial Release Therapy: Burbank provides us with an abundance of amazing places to eat although we still find ourselves lacking certain key nutrients we need to have a healthy life.
